Saxophone Jargon Buster

Types of Saxophone:
There are four main types of saxophone. From highest to lowest they are - soprano, alto, tenor and baritone. The most common saxophone to start learning on is the alto, followed by the tenor. The soprano is pitched an octave higher than the tenor, and the baritone is pitched an octave lower than the alto.


High F# Key:
This is an optional key found on the saxophone to give a fingering option to play a high F#. A player will need this around their fourth year of playing, and is usually requested by teachers. High F# is vital for year 11 and 12 studies as well as higher AMEB exams.
